A few wise men once said: “If they don’t know your dreams, then they can’t shoot ‘em down.” Today, many of us acknowledge and chase after our dreams under the watchful eye of an audience. Whether it be tweet, blog or word of mouth, whatever you choose to pursue isn’t safe from the criticisms of peers and strangers alike.

As an employee at VIBE Magazine, Lemon hustled his way out of a desk job and onto the stage as he tip-toed into the world of stand up comedy and eventually television. Since then, it’s been a rollercoaster ride for the comedic hustler who lends his witty one-liners and commentary to MTV’s Guy Code and Guy Court. Joined by a bevy of other familiar faces, Lemon’s advice comes at you straight with no chaser; and audiences can’t get enough.
